Hello & happy November, everyone! I am back from several days of resting and relaxing, and am so excited to jump into a new month. I've got a ton of fabulous posts planned for you, and I can't wait to see what this month holds.
Last week, Hunter and I took a quick trip south of Atlanta to Serenbe. Serenbe is a sustainable community that focuses on the serenity of nature and the conversion of art, education, wellbeing, & agriculture. The community has over 400 residents along with a town center, an Inn, several restaurants, a school, and a playhouse. We've always wanted to visit, so when I insisted we go down to see Sleepy Hollow, we took advantage and stayed the night.
The grounds of Serenbe are spectacular; everything is so peaceful, and you would never think you're just forty-five minutes south of a major city. We arrived on Thursday, got settled in, and headed to the Farmhouse for dinner. I loved having cocktails on the porch before we feasted at dinner. After dinner we left for the play which was so much fun. The concept is that the play takes place in different settings around the playhouse grounds. With hot spiked cider in hand, we watched the actors bring Ichabod, Katrina, and Brom to life.
Friday morning we were up early to check out Blue Eyed Daisy, Serenbe's coffee house. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast before heading out to explore. While there isn't a ton to see, the community is fascinating. The grounds around the inn offer a lot of activities for visitors to commune with nature. From large in ground trampolines to walking trails to the labyrinth that most definitely gave us a run for our money, we were entertained all morning. We even took a little tour through the animal farm & restaurant garden.
It was just the getaway we needed after a rather busy and stressful month. If you get a chance to visit Serenbe, even for the day, I definitely recommend you take it. You'll love the town as much as I did!
